Chicago Bears Mock Draft: Ryan Poles trades down twice early, doubles up at WR

The Chicago Bears do not have many draft picks to use in the 2024 NFL Draft, but they do have two picks inside the top 10. Ryan Poles is building something he views as special and to do that, he will need to continue to build through the draft. Poles trades down twice to acquire more draft capital but still comes away with a nice haul of talent.

4.123 | Ben Sinnott, TE - Kansas State

The offensive revamp continues for Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears as they use their second fourth-round pick to select Ben Sinnott out of Kansas State, I like Sinnott as a possible compliment to Cole Kmet. He can play that U tight end position while Kmet maintains that in-line position.

Although Sinnott doesn't have elite top-end speed, he is explosive off the line. He has great acceleration and uses it to find the right spots in zone coverage or separate from defenders while in man coverage. He has soft hands and will make fans excited with his YAC ability compared to Kmet. If the Bears do draft Sinnott or a similar type of tight end, then you might want to reconsider drafting Kmet as early in fantasy football.

If you are looking for a tight end who isn't afraid of a little contact, then Sinnott is your guy. He can be violent once he has his hands on the ball. It would be nice if he was a little faster than we see when flipping his tape on, but he should have little to no problems getting open with his route-running abilities.
